I just got a call from my Urologist's office with the results of my 6 month post op PSA 0.0

Now if I could get my wife to go to the ER. Her Crohn's is acting up. She vomited Tuesday 1 AM till 7 AM. hasn't had more than 20 oz of fluids since Tuesday morning. If I was suffering she would have had me in the ER yesterday. She will not listen to me. The only way I'll get her to the ER is if she passes out.

Great news on the test.
 
Ask the Mrs. really nicely if she'll do you the big favor of going. Tell her it’s GFMPH.

Ger,

Great results....keep it up!

As for your wife, just tell her that she has been overruled for her own good.

Any advice on how to convince a stubborn Polish woman to do anything she doesn't care to do?

Tell her "it's fine" and that there is a cute Czech girl that's moving in down the street who winked at you.
